Hey Wisconsin,

Your enthusiasm is greatly appreciated here. For the record, Keith Godchaux is the finest Grand Piano player and Brent Mydland is the finest Hammond B-3 player in the history of GD line-ups. As you invest a little more listening time towards the 72-73 / 76-77 era's you'll appreciate Keith a tad more. :)

We used to visit Wilmot & Alpine Valley for skiing in the late seventies, (20 minutes in the tow line, 30 seconds on the run) and caught a few Alpine Valley shows Supertramp, Doobie Brothers, The Eagles Long Run tour etc.

Are there still a good selection of show's performed at Alpine Valley? The Dead always enjoyed the venue.

Not really, unfortunately. FOr w.e reason Phish bailed on Alpine this year which has been a major bummer. As I'd have to go to evil chicago and pay up the ass to see them. Totally lame!!!!

Last years phish shows there were epic. After listening to the release of the first night many times, I wish I wouldn't have been as tipsy so I could've really taken in how amazing of a show I saw.
